DragonForce Announce New Vocalist

Nearly one year after vocalist ZP Theart parted ways with the band, DragonForce has found themselves a new frontman in Marc Hudson.“I'm really excited about being a part of the DragonForce family,” said Hudson. “It's always been my dream to dedicate my life to making music. I'm going to bring all the power and emotion I can to the songs, and help make the killer new record the fans have been waiting for!”

Born in Oxford England, Hudson was picked from the thousands of applications via a number of impressive video auditions and live performances, which left the rest of the band in no doubt that they’d found their man. Since the age of 16, Hudson has been building his vocal skills, gigging with bands in the UK underground scene, developing a powerful style with influences which include Bruce Dickinson, Michael Kiske and Sebastian Bach.


Said founding member and guitarist Herman Li: “After almost a year of searching around the globe, it’s great to be able to finally tell our fans the good news. Marc’s expressive and melodic vocals are sounding phenomenal on the new songs, adding another dimension to the DragonForce sound that I am sure all the fans will love. Everyone in the band is extremely excited about how the new material is shaping up. “We haven’t felt this kind of energy in the band for a long time. We can’t wait to unleash the next DragonForce album later this year.”

This guy doesn't seem quite as good as ZP, but as long as the fretboards are burning, I'll rock out to DragonForce.

Can one ever replace a pre-existing band's lead singer and have the same, or greater success?

News to me! He seems ok. Doesn't have the presence of ZP but maybe that will come. GL Dforce.
